Where Thou art — that — is Home —

Where Thou art — that — is Home —
Cashmere — or Calvary — the same —
Degree — or Shame —
I scarce esteem Location’s Name —
So I may Come —

What Thou dost — is Delight —
Bondage as Play — be sweet —
Imprisonment — Content —
And Sentence — Sacrament —
Just We two — meet —

Where Thou art not — is Woe —
Tho’ Bands of Spices — row —
What Thou dost not — Despair —
Tho’ Gabriel — praise me — Sire —
